Anyone have info on this event?

Organizer e-mailed an entry form.
$300 entry--high even for FBA. :redface:
I asked for "payouts" and brochure, but no respose yet.

Is this one "worth it" ??
Need to make a decision.

I'm taking the judges class on Friday night and hope to judge on Saturday. I'll be there either way so if not judging I will be glad to give any of the Brethren a hand.

Those are some steep entry fees. West, Tx was only $125 and they paid through 15th place $100. We ended up with 101 teams. How do they get away with them fees in Florida? I would imagine it will keep a lot of folks from entering.

Rub, how many teams entered last year's event?

Rub
03-26-2007, 04:42 PM
40 teams last year, last count was 35 for this year. $300 is high, but not uncommon. Of course $125 sounds a lot better.

These contest organizers need to work on getting some sponsors.
300 is toooooo much!

AMEN, for sure!

We are passing on Lake City and looking at Macclenny later in Apr.
A more reasonable payout,

Awards http://www.hogdaysofspring.org/HawgHeadsmall.gif
(Pro-rated if less than 20 Teams compete)
Awards Ceremony Saturday - 5:30 P.M.

Professional Division http://www.hogdaysofspring.org/HawgHeadsmall.gif
Grand Champion $1,500.00 Plus Trophy
Reserve Champion $1,000.00 Plus Trophy
Each of Four Categorieshttp://www.hogdaysofspring.org/HawgHeadsmall.gif

4th Place $75.00 Plus Trophy 5th thru 10th Place $50.00 Plus Ribbons



------------------------B

But $200 fee and 20 X 30 sites sounds a lot more cooker friendly. :lol:
The organizer has spent a lot of time at other events (KCBS and FBA) and is an FBA Judge. I judged with him at Starke last winter and he seems really dedicated to making it happen right the first time.

So, Y'all have fun at Lake City and we may see ya in a few weeks.

We may be cooking on Dave's KingFisher or my FEC--but for now, the FEC is kicking my ass on Brisket :oops:

I just have to congratulate Ricky of the FBA for posting results so quick!

I am really tired and will BOLD all the Brethren in the AM.
For now--WTG guys!
